Abstract

Granulomatous Meningoencephalitis (GME) is an inflamatory, non suppurative disease of the Central Nervous System. This disease has been described since 1972 and a great variety of terms have been used to name (THOMAS; EGGER14, 1989). This paper describes a case o f a 3 years and 8 months old, female Dachshund, that was brought to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at UNESP, Botucatu, São Paulo, Brazil, showing incoordenation during the last 10 days and head tilt. After careful examination, concluding to irreversibility of the process, the dog was euthanatised. Necropsy findings were necrosis of the white cerebral matter and in histopathologic examination of the CNS was diagnosticated GME.
